I was wrong about Trump.
Not that he isn’t a shill for the financial cartel and another face of the elites. Yes, he is all that.
But I was wrong that the election was just six of one, half a dozen of the other.
So far, at least, that’s not been the case.
All the goody-two-shoes bombing-for-their-own-good of Afghanistan, Libya, and Syria, apparently qualified Obama as a “decent” man and great president to our liberal brethren.
Comes Trump who hasn’t bombed a soul but merely – and quite sensibly- wants to keep out refugees from countries that are considered enemies of the US, and the caterwauling can be heard around the solar system.
What? You think a sovereign nation has the right to determine who enters its borders and wants to keep out people who might – quite justifiably in my opinion – want to sock it to Americans for what’s been done to them?
You madman, you!
And that wall. Sure, it’s a boondoggle. But then what isn’t?
Not that I personally am in favor of stopping Mexicans crossing the border to work illegally.
But along with workers, come gangs, revanchist groups, gun-running, drugs, and sex-trafficking. And subsidies to illegals that have bust the budgets of border states.
A virtual wall would be more efficient and cheaper, but I personally prefer concrete, if for nothing more than the symbolism of a Great Wall Of Mehiko.
True, I will no longer be able to dreamily plot routes that avoid passport checks – a favorite hobby of a frequent traveler. Sailing across an unmanned southern border will soon be an impossibility. I dread to think of the logistics, the dust thrown up, the flora and fauna diving for cover.
But all leaders have their follies and the ancient Egyptians probably hated the building of the pyramids as well.
Let Trump have his.
Meanwhile, there’s the whole LBGTQ project struck right off the official website; the climate-change agenda erased; funding withdrawn for US tax-payer subsidized abortions; Obama care reversed (at least somewhat); the massacre of Christians in the Middle East an actual thing in the news….
I am not naive enough to believe all this doesn’t still conceal another chapter in the globalist agenda. It does.
But common sense and the people who pay the bills have just made a come-back, short-lived, as it may be.
I, for one, am grateful.
Now, about FATCA…
